Mickey Rooney Excellent In "The Hardy Family"
This is a very good "Andy Hardy" radio program, apparently airing in 1949-50 and then rerun on the Mutual Don Lee network a couple of years later. Fay Holden, Lewis Stone, and Mickey Rooney continue to do well in the "Hardy Family" radio roles, picking up from the roles they played in the M-G-M movies.
